Once again it’s Monday morning and I haven’t got a post up. I really must try harder, I know, but let me tell you what happened.
At three o’clock on Sunday afternoon I decided I had to paint my kitchen cupboards. Two of the doors had fallen off anyway and I figured while I was fixing them I could paint them too. You know how you can paint a window closed? I’m kind of hoping adding paint to the glue will give it a little more umph. No, that’s not right. Layering paint over the glue is what I mean, not mixing the paint with the glue.
This isn’t the first time I’ve had to fix the doors and it lasted a while when I did it before, but not long enough.
I think we have a habit of resting our weight on the handle as we search for things. When I say we, I really mean me, but I don’t want to take the whole blame for the door debacle. And the other door was definitely not me. I think.
Anyway, I glued the doors and primed them. Then I figured I could get quite a lot of the rest of them done so I took a few more doors and a couple of drawers out and did them too. Pretty soon I was painting the face of the cabinets too. I managed three coats before I had to stop for the night. I really don’t have that many cabinets. It’s a strange kitchen. I used to only have counter space the size of the top of a dishwasher, but last summer we improved some and it’s a little better now.
So there you go. I have painted cabinets. You, however, are left without a blog. But really, you have better things to do than read about my weekend – right? And if you’re lucky you’ll get photos.
